It looks like they are going after the high end market space (medical, Xray, etc). I wonder what the technical background/history is for the process at the foundry or BYD? Do they have a proven track record at either foundry or BYD for these types of devices? Is this an effort to produce a lower cost (higher margin) device or just an extension of BYD's portfolio? Curious.

I don't know. I doubt it, although the specification (from sunlight to dim moonlight) sounds extreme. I expect the military have been there first. I'll ask, but mean time is any others in this forum know for sure, please chip in, pun intend.
